Wardrobe stylist of top rated TV shows receive jewelry from Bead Lovers Korner

The wardrobe stylist of top rated TV shows received our jewelry this year which is exciting for the many possibilities.

These great opportunities were made possible through collaborative gift bags presented in association with The Artisan Group®.

Wardrobe stylist gifts

Gifted to wardrobe stylist of TVD
Celtic dragon bracelet

This Celtic dragon bracelet was gifted to the wardrobe stylist of “The Vampire Diaries” for consideration of use on future episodes.

This cool bracelet is “unisexy” and could be worn by any male or female members of the cast.

Gifted to wardrobe stylist Girlfriend's Guide to Divorce
Sterling silver and Swarovski crystal wire wrapped necklace

A delicately wire-wrapped necklace of Swarovski crystal beads and sterling silver was included in the gift bag from The Artisan Group that was sent to the stylists of “Girlfriends Guide to Divorce”.

Gift to stylist of 112263-Pearls
Classic style cream pearl necklace

Last but not least, this lovely Swarovski cream pearl necklace was hand-linked and given as a classic style necklace to the celebrity wardrobe stylist of “11/22/63”. This is a TV-mini-series based on the book written by Stephen King

Stephen King is one of my all time favorite authors and I have read many of his books over the years, so naturally this was an exciting opportunity for me.

Crossing my fingers that any of these three jewelry pieces might catch the eye of a celebrity fashion stylist in wardrobe and costuming and be considered for use on the shows!

Hematite jewelry handmade gifts for members of the press

I signed up to send Hematite Jewelry as my handmade jewelry gifts for members of the Press who attend GBK’s Celebrity Gift Lounge honoring the MTV Movie Awards Nominees and Presenters. This great opportunity is one of the benefits of being a member of The Artisan Group!

I just love crystals and stones, so I decided to make pendant necklaces with Hematite Spheres. I ordered all of my jewelry making supplies and when I received the spheres I had to laugh because by themselves they were like little cannon balls!

It took me several days, but once I added some wire and swirls the little “cannon balls” transformed into beautiful Hematite Jewelry.

Hematite stones have beneficial metaphysical and spiritual properties and are a popular stone for crystal healing. When I made my necklace cards I also included a few of these properties on the back (a benefit of making your own jewelry cards, click here to see this FREE tutorial)

These are all packaged in organza bags and on their way to the event. It will be exciting to see who will receive them! These are also available for special order on the website 🙂

Looking forward to season two of “Better Call Saul”

Better-Call Saul BraceletReally looking forward to the return of “Better Call Saul” which is the AMC “Breaking Bad” spin-off .

The character Saul Goodman grew on me with every “Breaking Bad” episode, and this prequel is unraveling the life and times of Saul Goodman as Jimmy McGill.

Recently I also had the opportunity, through The Artisan Group®, to gift a piece of jewelry to the wardrobe stylist for consideration of use on the “Better Call Saul” series.

Not much jewelry was used in season 1 so it never surfaced, but there is still hope that my bracelet could be used in season 2.

I decided on this bracelet by thinking back to different types of jewelry that might be found in the time period that this show will take place.

I used an aquamarine colored Swarovski crystal as a sort of pre Breaking Bad Blue and combined it with black onyx to contrast that emergent color symbol.

Crossing my fingers that it will be used in season 2, but even more so I am really looking forward to seeing more of the story and character styles that are being revealed in this new series.

Will you be tuning in to watch “Better Call Saul”? Leave a comment and let me know your thoughts!

Do you send Thank You notes for gifts?

Do you send Thank You notes for gifts? Does anyone do that anymore? Just when I thought that tradition was dead, two handwritten thank you notes from celebrities were sent to The Artisan Group®, thanking us for the gifts we sent.

These lovely notes thanked everyone for the handmade gifts that we included in the Mother’s Day Gift Bag for 2014.

Each note card expressed gratitude for our personal gifts to them and by sitting down to write thank you notes it showed their sincere appreciation.

Thank You Note from Kristin Cavallari
Thank You Note from Kristin Cavallari

To Jennifer Love Hewitt and Kristin Cavallari – You are very welcome for the gifts and I hope you enjoy wearing our Rose Quartz bracelet and all of the handcrafted jewelry and other gifts that were included in the bag!

Sending Thank You notes for gifts

When I was growing up writing, sending a Thank You Note through the mail was very important. In the past 40 years that tradition has seemed to dwindle now that you can easily pick up a phone and call, text or email your thanks.

I was glad to see that this time-honored social etiquette is still alive and not entirely forgotten!! Do you send Thank You Notes?
